NYLS($$$) vs Touro($)
« on: July 07, 2004, 11:20:36 AM »
I was accepted to both.  Touro offer me $3000 for part time.  NYLS didn't offer me any money.  It would cost me $28,000 to go to NYLS part time as compare with 16,500 in Touro.  I would most likley would like to practice locally. which school should I go to?

Hey Ronnie-- I am going to NYLS PT so I am biased. But from what I understand, NYLS even as a Tier 3 is in a totally different league than Touro. I know cost is an issue but seriously consider what you might make after you graduate from NYLS v. Touro. From what I understand, NYLS has a solid career placement office. That was an important factor in my decision. I also live and work in the city so that made a difference as well. Good luck the decision.

Thanks for you answer.
Are you 1L student?
can you tell me what kind of a scholarship would you get in NYLS if you are in the top %20 or top %15 of your class?
how is the job market for someone who isn't in the top %20?
Anybody else has any comments about Touro?

I'm starting in the Fall. Not sure about 2nd year scholarships. The financial aid office will answer that though. They said at Admitted Students Day that anyone in the top 15% will automatically get $$ the 2nd year. They didn't say how much though. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Ronnie, I don't know much about Touro but I hear NYLS has a good local rep.  I was in NYC this weekend and our hotel was only about 4 blocks from NYLS which seems to have nice facilities.
